“Wonderful Christmas” is a PTU tagger size scrap kit created by Wilma of Wilma4ever and can be purchased her store here. You can visit her blog here.
Thank you Wilma for a….wow! A really fantastic kit!!
This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a 700 x 700 transparent image.
Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Frame 1 as a new layer.
Resize 80%
Free rotate left 30 degrees.

Click inside with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 6
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.

Close out your white background.

Add your embellishments. I used:

Branch 1: Erase the stem on it. Duplicate and/or Mirror as you see fit.

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.

Merge Group.
Add your copyrights.
Add your name.
Give it a slight inner bevel:

Copy and paste Stars 1 as a new layer.
